EVE vs WHU Fantasy Prediction: West Ham continue to slump as the club goes four matches without a win.
Although a 0-0 result against Southampton didn’t leave West Ham downtrodden, the club’s form across the course of December does make for alarming viewing. After a runaway start to the Premier League season, the club has now reverted back to its traditional jittery self.
Going four matches without a win, West Ham are clearly a club which are fast regressing as a unit. The club wont be as fortuitous as it was against Southampton, a match where the side was extremely lucky to keep Southampton at bay.
And with Everton accorded a week’s rest in between today’s clash, things are going to be extremely worrisome for West Ham when they step out onto the pitch.
After their clash against Manchester City was called off due to COVID, Everton found themselves avoiding the hectic festive period. With extra time to cool off and get organised for this clash, the hosts will come out with everything they have to register a win.
Lucas, Gbamin, Allan and James are all injured for Everton.
Arthur’s injury sees him skip another encounter.
Probable Playing XI
Pickford, Holgate, Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Doucoure, Davies, Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Gordon, Calvert-Lewin.
West Ham United
Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals, Antonio.
Everton – Dominic: 11 Goals.
West Ham United – Soucek: 4 Goals.
EVE vs WHU Fantasy Prediction
Had it not been for Lukasz Fabianski, West Ham would have fallen to a sure shot defeat the last time. The shot stopper managed to parry away a slew of shots, a performance which saw him earn a 0-0 draw for his side.

After an entirety of yearning for defensive acumen, Everton look to be finally clicking as a unit. Injuries have surprisingly done a world of good for the club with the team going onto keep three shut downs in its last four matches.
The new found defensive resillinace sees us opt for Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate and Michael Keane from the club. West Ham on the other hand will see us roll in top assists provider with the four to his name, Aaron Cresswell.
Having pulled off four goals for West Ham this season, Tomas Soucek has turned out into a player not even his most ardent admirers would have envisioned. Jarrod Bowen who has the four goals as well in his partner, two names who make for a seamless blend of attack and defence.
Midfielder Declan Rice completes the trio of selection from the team while the assist for Gylfi Sigurdsson against Arsenal sees him become our pick from Everton.
Everton’s top scorer, Dominic Calvert-Lewin as ever is ingrained in our side with Richarlison who has the two goals and three assists forming the one-two of picks from the land of the club.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The 11 goals for Dominic see him wade into our side as the captain while Richarlison is the vice-captain.
Lukasz, Mina, Aaron, Holgate, Keane, Rice, Bowen, Soucek, Gylfi, Dominic, Richarlison.
